Elon Musk has claimed AI poses more of a threat than North Korea . The SpaceX founder, who is hoping to become the first man to establish a human colony on Mars, said humans should be “vastly” more concerned about robots taking over the world.

Musk, who is spearheading commercial space travel with his venture SpaceX, is also the founder of OpenAI, a nonprofit that promotes the "safe" development of AI.

His stance puts him at odds with much of the tech industry, but echoes remarks of prominent voices like Stephen Hawking—who has also issued dire warnings about machine learning.
